5:05am
fire fight any easier. >> power lines were dropped down hampering the fire operation. >> you had to pull back completely? >> we didn't pull back completely, we had to readjust some lines. >> reporter: another thing that made the fire fight more difficult and we have seen it in the news with the fire stations closing, there is a fire station which is about a mile from where we are and that fire station actually closed in july so the next closest was five miles further and that meant they had to wait a little bit longer a couple of minutes but really the house was so fully involved when they got here there was not much they could do to save it. coming back to the scene on taylor road you can see them putting water on this structure but when you pan down, you can see the wreckage, that was the
5:06am
original house which was on fire. i have spoken to the residence who say -- residents who say they were in the house, we can tell you nobody was hurt and they have evacuated homes on either side but again this fire was very stubborn and it will be at least another half hour before they get this fire under control because it is in the upper level of this building. residents are very frustrated because it's very difficult to watch their homes continue to burn. live in bethel island, claudine wong ktvu channel 2 morning news. well, it is the first day of spring and that's not stopping the rain this morning. tara moriarty is in richmond with more on what we can expect for the morning commute, tara? >> reporter: well we can call them spring showers because it is the first official day for the oakland tribune and it is
